Workout results 12/28 - Finishing 2009 Strong!

Monday, December 28, 2009

Today was wonderful. My energy was high and I felt fantastic! During my walk I was doing SO great in the beginning. For a few minutes I walked a 12:01 pace UPHILL! It was amazing. Then of course I started getting super tired and I had to drop my pace down big time to a 15 mm. But it was wonderful while it lasted! I was missing my runs today seeing people out running and training for the upcoming marathons here. But I will have my turn soon, for now, I am walking for my baby and I which is far more important to me!

I had another great day in terms of my nutrition and when I finish dinner my fiber intake will be a whopping 88 grams for today! GOODNESS!! My calories are on track and so is my protein intake. I am having cravings though. BIG TIME! There are times where these commercials come on for pizza or something and my mouth starts to water. But I am staying strong and if it is not in the house, I am fine. That is key for me.

I hope to have another strong day tomorrow and end 2009 with a bang! Now after walking 8 miles today, doing 3 loads of laundry, a load of dishes plus raking leaves outside, I am zapped!

    Good Job on the walking & the fiber!
    and, I gotta say, a 15 min/ mile WALKING pace is still pretty darn good!

    WOW!!! You are amazing with all your exercise! I cannot do 8miles of walking-I'm happy to get 3.5 in and my hip muscle is yelling at me the whole way! Running is easier on my hip,for whatever reason,and I"m glad to be back at it. Unfortunately, I cannot run every day-per advice from all the rookie runners and experts. I will get out for a walk tomorrow,though.
    Another question: How do you drink so much water and not spend your whole day in the loo? I drink very little,not proud of that,b/c it just doesn't taste good during preg.
    I enjoy reading your blogs-you are a motivator!
